Dinner Presentation – Planning for Climate Change in the Wenatchee River Basin: The Alpine Lakes Storage Optimization Project  

Mike Kaputa, Director, Chelan County Natural Resource Department
  
The Icicle Work Group was convened in December 2012 by Chelan County and Ecology’s Office of the Columbia River to develop a long-term water management plan for Icicle Creek and surrounding tributaries.  Long-term water demands, instream flows for fish, ongoing hatchery obligations and a growing population all contribute to a complex and historically contentious Icicle Creek basin.  Compounded by climate change implications, water wars in Icicle Creek promise to get worse without significant planning and intervention.  The presentation will focus on a variety of potential water solutions for Icicle Cree, including storage, hatchery and irrigation district upgrades, and conservation measures.

Mike Kaputa, AICP, is the Director of the Chelan County Natural Resource Department, working for the Chelan County Commissioners and local communities.  The department is engaged in a number of collaborative natural resource planning efforts and implementation projects.  One of these efforts, the Icicle Work Group, has been co-convened by Chelan County and the WA Department of Ecology Office of the Columbia River to develop a comprehensive water resource management plan for the Icicle Creek watershed and surrounding areas.
